    In the formative years of gas turbine engine development, it was thought that the engine could run on most liquid fuels. It was soon realized, however, that much better performance could be obtained if fuel properties were restricted. The number of properties specified increased over the years, and today's aviation gas turbine fuels must meet a long list of requirements. In fact, our current jet engine fuels have the most extensive specifications of all hydrocarbon-based fuels.
